Employee of the Month

Leiana Rivera
Leiana Rivera

UMC Lab

"A patient's wife called saying her husband was ill and would not be able to make his appointment for his labs (he is a regular patient with a debilitating condition). The wife asked if someone from UMC could come draw his blood so his physician would have an update on his condition. Leiana did not hesitate to gather her supplies and head over; she ended up making two trips to make sure the physician received the results he needed. We are proud of her dedication to our patients!"

Attending of the Month

House Staff of the Month

Homen,-Dylan
Dylan Homen, MD

TTUHSC Dept. of Orthopaedic Surgery

“When insurance denied a patient’s stay, Dr. Homen didn’t hesitate to do a peer-to-peer review with the insurance company. As a result, the denial was overturned, and the insurance approved the hospital stay. We are grateful for his going above and beyond.”
